One of the best months of dividend income to report. As dividend investors, we love the quarter ends, due to being the most popular month, as well as an even better month for those that have mutual funds and/or ETFs. The busy season is slowly slowing down, gosh I wish it would end, but dividend income always keeps me at least going for the time being.
Well, it looks like I had an itch that needed to be scratched after compiling my May dividend stock watch list. After years of coveting this stock and patiently waiting on the sidelines for the right moment to strike, the purchase date finally arrived. After all, how could I pass up the opportunity to purchase one of my “Always Buy” stocks? Time to see why I finally initiated a position in Pepsico (PEP) in May!
I hope that your stomach has felt the ups and downs this year. The S&P 500 is pretty much flat year-to-date. However, that doesn’t mean that there haven’t been amazing opportunities out there. Opportunities that we haven’t seen in so fricken long, as dividend investors. However, with all of the events occurring this year – tax reform, tariffs, earnings being released for quarter 1, interest rates rising and inflation starting to creep (gas, groceries, etc.), is this the right time to jump in on dividend stock opportunities? I plan on talking about dividend stocks, where they are at today and comparing them to 5 year dividend yield averages. When doing this, it may showcase opportunities out there.
